Every day, Ohioans are making extraordinary contributions to the communities where they live, work, and play.

As longtime AmeriCorps Program Director Dayle Deardurff retires this month, she reflects on her career focused on strengthening her community through service and volunteerism. One of her main takeaways is that AmeriCorps is comprised of wonderful people who are really making this a better world.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion creates stronger communities. When everyone has a seat - and a voice - at the table, we can find solutions to address our most pressing problems and have a positive impact on the entire community. AmeriCorps members have a unique opportunity to be community conveners and help to ensure that everyone they serve has a voice that is heard.
ServeOhio is excited to welcome an AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) team to Ohio this summer! A team of AmeriCorps members will serve at Supports to Encourage Low-income Families (SELF) in Hamilton, Ohio. SELF, which is Butler County’s community action agency, has a mission to enhance the quality of life for county residents by impacting the causes of poverty and empowering individuals to achieve, sustain and advocate self-sufficiency. Learn more about the project and how you or your organization can get involved with NCCC.
On May 7-9, 2019 America’s Service Commissions (ASC), in partnership with ServeMinnesota, hosted the first of three regional National Service Training conferences in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Our state host ServeMinnesota shares our Central Region and shares some similar community issues and AmeriCorps impacts.
Six Ohio AmeriCorps programs have been awarded more than $4.1 million dollars by our federal partner, the Corporation for National and Community Service, to continue their impact throughout Ohio!
